For James, being in the Peleckas family meant being active as soon as he could walk. Training with his brother, Ray, in college made him one of the first official RayFittters. Despite his dedication to studying civil engineering at UMass Dartmouth, he recognized his real passion lay in personal training and strong, one-on-one relationships. After getting certified with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and instructing clients at a Boston Sports Club, James quickly advanced his expertise and now leads sessions at BURNIN' by Ray. While you can catch him leading Original Burn and 2.0 classes, James is also certified in integrated stretching and catering to pregnant clients and new moms who need a gentler approach. He continues to explore and educate himself in new methods, practices and techniques in the fitness industry, so he is always in-the-know of current trends. James' clients repeatedly turn to him (as a trainer and a friend) for his dedication to crafting personalized programs they desire.
